A Divine Life

Finding spiritual growth through worldly experience

 

A retreat for lovers of the divine and life

March 29 – April 1, 2023
Cornville, Arizona

Led by Robin Stamp and Sonja Semyonova

Make Your Life Divine

If you call yourself a spiritual seeker, how do you manage the realities of worldly life?

For instance,

How do you merge a two-hour meditation practice with a two-hour trip to the grocery store?

How do you meet the divine in your yoga practice and your spouse?

How can you trust your inner guide to keep you safe in the outer world?

Join Robin Stamp and Sonja Semyonova, spiritual teachers and lovers of life and the divine, for a three-day exploration of these questions and so much more.

A Profane and Sacred Life

 

While it seems that spiritual seeking and worldly life are often at odds, there is a way to bring them together.

Every moment of worldly engagement – from a fight with a partner to a decision at the grocery store – can serve a guidepost back to our highest calling, if we have a roadmap for navigating these terrains.

The first step to knowing how to walk in both worlds simultaneously is to understand the powers and shadows of each. The second step is learning how to move seamlessly between them, with love and approval at the center.

This retreat will guide you to find that center, and offer tools to walk openly in the outer world while staying present in the inner universe.

Your Experience

Every retreat is as much about what you learn as it is about how you learn it. Our aim is to create a space of community, practice, and celebration — exactly what is at the heart of the union of the spiritual and the worldly.

We will keep the group intimate enough for personalized attention but big enough to allow each attendee to build new connections with likeminded seekers living in the world.

What you’ll learn:

  • Tools, somatic practices, and meditations to build more centered relationships with partners, colleagues, friends, and everyone around you.
  • An introduction to the mythology of the shadow planets in yogic astrology, Rahu and Ketu, and their place in your body and life.
  • Teachings to enrich the inner state of joy and the outer state of possibility.
  • Live, in-person space in community (not on Zoom!), including community cooking and morning practices.

Daily Schedule

All aspects of our schedule are voluntary. We want you to attend what you want to attend. If you choose to sit something out for alone space, a river dip, or just because, we welcome your choice.

  • 7:00-8:15 yoga or qi gong (alternating days)
  • 8:30-9:30 breakfast
  • 10:00-12:00 morning session 
  • 12:00 – 1:30 free time or shared cooking
  • 1:30 – 3:00 lunch
  • 3:00-5:00 afternoon session 
  • 5:00-6:30 free time or shared cooking
  • 6:30 dinner
  • 7:30 satsang casual gathering (this is an organic community space where many beautiful things will transpire)

 

Community Cooking Time

As part of our desire to create a sense of community and apply the teachings of a divine life, we will share in the expereince of cooking lunch and dinner.

As your guides, we will bring together our decades-long shared study of holistic healing and Ayurveda to create meals that are simple, delicious, and easy. This is a casual space for learning, laughing, and sharing — the best form of nourishment in life.

Think of this part of the retreat as more than just meal prep. It is a way to learn how to incorporate food and cooking as a sacred part of your everyday life.

Our food will be vegetarian, locally sourced, and as organic as possible. We are happy to accomodate your dietary needs with advance notice.

Your Guides

We are Sonja Semyonovaa and Robin Stamp, partners in all things. As spiritual seekers, co-parents, lovers, friends, and co-teachers, we’ve learned how to manage many of the hurdles of both spiritual and worldly life.

 

We are playful, connected, and caring souls who work in separate spaces, but often share clients. In our first joint retreat since the pandemic, we bring our decades-long experience of spiritual practice alongside a lifetime of exploration into the art of living.

About Sonja

I am a healer, intuitive, and writer of magic words. My work centers around helping my clients learn to turn the stories of their greatest pain into their personal legends.

I began my spiritual seeking in earnest 20 years ago when I began studying intuitive healing. From there, I took deep dives into yoga, Ayurveda, and somatic sex education, all in an attempt to gain mastery of life through the world of my body.

In addition to co-teaching this retreat with Robin, I offer 1:1 guidance and group courses. I post musings about the intersection of emotion, sex, spirituality, and the body on my blog, Instagram, and TikTok.

 

About Robin

I have always been a seeker, one who wants to go deeper and understand the “why” behind questions.

This has led me to study with great masters of yoga, Ayurveda, and astrology. My goal: to immerse myself in the understanding that we are all part of the great Oneness. Call it God, Shiva, consciousness, the Intelligent Universe — it’s all the same truth.

Pulling together all my experience, I offer yogic astrology, karmic counseling, and teachings on embodied masculinity for those who desire a life that is more open and fulfilling. You can learn more about me and the work I offer at universeembodied.com.

Where We’ll Gather

We will gather in a gorgeous retreat space in Page Springs, Arizona.

Just an hour’s drive from the Phoenix airport, our home for this retreat is nestled in a lush hillside setting. While surrounded by desert, Page Springs features a rich, Mediterranean-like climate filled with vineyards and rivers to play in.

Choose Your Accommodations

We will host this event at The Place at Page Springs, a three-acre destination in the heart of Northern Arizona’s wine country. Beautifully situated along Oak Creek, the land has been carefully designed to heighten and preserve the natural beauty of the surroundings, with vineyards, farms, towering rock formations, and Oak Creek. 

The property includes access to Oak Creek, a swimming pool, as well as nearby access to vineyards and other beautiful sites. 

Rooms and suites range from $160-$360 a night and may be reserved as individual accommodations or shared spaces. We encourage you to book accommodations as soon as possible to ensure you get your top choice.

In Your Words

“BodyStory was a truly transformative experience. Sonja beautifully weaves Ayurvedic wisdom with her own intuition in a way that creates profound connection to the ancient teachings.”

Angela

“Taking part in Sonja’s BodyStory class and sharing with her and others allowed my body and heart to have a more clear voice about its wants, needs and desires. Sonja created a sacred safe container for us to share openly and spontaneously.”

Nafisseh

“I have participated in several SevaMama online courses and each has enriched my life in a different way. With each course, I gain new insights and build my Ayurvedic toolbox.”

Don’t Stop Me Now: The Erotic and the Power of a Healthy Nervous System

When it comes to healing, the way up isn’t always down. I’m speaking in terms of the nervous system, of course. And I’m speaking to the multitude of teachings that focus on attuning to calm as the definition of healing. What I’m saying is that true nervous system...
